Up turned brims are generally made with a hollow centre into which the material is pinned to create the up-stand for the crown. Smaller up turned brims may be suitable for blocking-in-one where the blocked crown (including crown block) is pushed through the hole in the brim. This usually requires brim legs and the brim also needs to be sized bigger to allow room for the material between crown and brim. This is a great technique and we’re here to help if your unsure what method you will use.
Some brims come with string grooves as standard where they are necessary to give a clear cut line, but where they are not included they can be added for an additional charge of £12.00 (£10.00 ex VAT). Please check the description.
